Not my first visit here but the foresta pizza here is consistently so good, I thought it only fair to give a review of this option in Design Square. We always get good service here, enough managers to ask "how is the food" and did I mention I enjoy the foresta pizza? Actually, this stems from a visit to the... More

Four of us went for lunch and had a variety of dishes that were all pretty good. The only "whoopsy" was a mix up with one vegetarian order which arrived with mince meat. This, however was quickly rectified. The one other negative was the waitress who mumbled when speaking and had no character at all but this will not put... More

I must say it took me a while before I could overcome the awkward feeling caused by the name (cacchio is not exactly what you'd eat for dinner) but have been there several times since, with both Italian, South African and foreign friends. As for pizzas, both dough and toppings are impeccably made. I also tried salads and desserts and... More

I am fond of pizza's and this specific Col'Cacchio has been one my favourates of many years and I think it is the baseline for the other restaurants in this franchise Their food quality, service etc is always the same There are many other pizza places, but the pizza you get here as just in a class of their own....

Went there for a quick dinner. Ate a pizza, which was excellent, thick with enough toppings. The service was fast and kind. Huge variety of beers, even craft beer!!! Highly recommended to try! Make sure you give enough tip, because they expect it.

There is no better place in Pretoria for salad. They have such a wide choice of unique and different types of salad - you have to try the Torello which has biltong and brie cheese (ask for avo). Their pizza is also highly recommended. Great service, from well trained staff.

Always enjoy Col Cacchio for lunch or dinner. Very good salads, unusual pizzas and yummy pasta dishes not to mention the desserts which are excellent. A family favourite.

No no no Col'Cacchio Design Square! As avid foodies we are use to and willing to pay good money for good food. However, R145 for the prawn and chorizo pizza was robbery! 3 prawns cut in half and spread over 6 of the 8 slices with a few shamed pieces of chorizo and green pepper left us not only feeling...
